This is one of the most enjoyable, interesting mini "museums" that you'll find. It's really more of a slice of life. It's personal, has some great old British bikes and a few BMW's and Vespas. If they are not too busy you may get a personalized tour with a history of each bike. This is a great way to spend... More

Great place. Great collection of bikes and wonderful stories from the man himself. Best to hear stories from the man that lived them. Bikes are displayed well and signs to explain what your seeing. Self proclaimed old geezer is your guide but he's really an old fashioned gentleman!! Go. Go. Go

From 1913 Harley Davidson to a large collection of British classic bikes this is a great museum with friendly hosts. Large collection of BMWs and scooters. There is an even old Maytag gas engine for a washing machine.

This place really brings back memories of sitting on the back of my dads cycle on the way to school. He loved motorcycles and it stuck with me. Now that I have children I don't ride, but I look forward to hitting the road once the grandkids are grown. In the mean time- this museum fits me just fine.

Was planning a trip on our Harley to the Monterey area and looked up thing to do on tripadvisor. Stopped by and was met by Emma. What a sweet and knowledgeable woman. Emma walked with us explaining a little history of the museum and about different bikes. Emma showed us the Norton Commando she had restored. I was also impressed... More

There was a sign outside that said open Saturday (it was Wed) but when I tried the door it opened. Owner said he decided to open because there were lots of people in Carmel for the Pebble Beach cars which were lining up on Ocean Blvd. Mostly older bikes and some scooters with one Rotary-engined motorcycle

This is a privately owned collection of motorcycles and scooters, kept in a store front on Forest Street in Pacific Grove. The collection ranges from the pristine to the hard pressed. Makes include most common models with some unique examples thrown in. Admission is free but a donation is gratefully accepted.
